Description:
"About 10 miles from Maxeys, Georgia. Wire bridge over Oconee River, connecting Oconee County and Oglethorpe County. Built by Mr. Pearl Aycock of Maxeys, Georgia. Mr. Aycock died in 1997. It was built in the early years of the 20th century and lasted until near the end of World War II. Very famous in this section of the state. Withstood all floods and was primary means of communication between the two counties, especially during floods. Built by hand labor and Aycock's own design."--from field notes
